    can actually see them moving around inside. I am concerned about the first one, there appears to be a blood ring... but I'm not good enough at this to say for sure. I'm afraid to pitch it and find out it was fine!

    In the first one it looked like it was moving. A blood ring forms when the chick (duck in your case) dies, and the blodd from the viens pools inside the egg. It may be a bacteria ring, but I wouldn't worry. Just leave it in there for a while, as long as it is moving it's still alive.

    I saw movement in all three. I would leave it in there and candle again at another time. Excellent video, what did you use to candle with? [​IMG]
